medicare open enrollment scamsHybridCare would like to remind everyone that Open Enrollment begins on November 15th. We urge those eligible for open enrollment to use caution when choosing a plan. There is nothing wrong with putting on the breaks in the purchasing process. Here are some quick tips to avoid problems and scams.

  1. Be careful sharing you personal and banking information with people stating that they “represent Medicare” or “endorsed by Medicare”
  2. Stop the selection process if you do not understand how a product will function
  3. If you feel pressured into buying, DO NOT BUY.
  4. Use resources: Call 1-800-Medicare or go to www.medicare.gov
  5. Learn what type of product suites you better; Medicare Supplement, Medicare Advantage, etc (contact us if you need more information)

The best thing you can do is educate yourself and your family about Medicare.
Our team is here to help answer questions. You MUST know how a product functions before you purchase. We encourage you to ask and compare.  Yes, there are a few crooks that make our job serving you more difficult.  However, we want to give you the knowledge and tools to protect yourself and make a good decision in regard to Medicare.  A knowledgeable consumer is a good consumer.
